The impact of an Evidence Based Practice (EBP) can be assessed by measuring the outcomes for consumers receiving the services. In order to attribute the outcomes to the intervention, however, the degree to which the practice is delivered as designed must also be determined. This process typically involves the use of a fidelity measure developed to assess the presence and extent of critical components of the model. This workshop will present the Dartmouth Assertive Community Treatment Scale (DACTS) as a fidelity measures for Assertive Community Treatment (ACT). Additionally, attention will be paid to guiding the supervision of the ACT practice from both a clinical and administrative perspective.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the critical ingredients of ACT as defined and measured through fidelity.
  • Explain key elements for supervising the clinical elements of ACT.
  • Understand the process and product of a fidelity assessment.
  • Develop plans to use the results of a fidelity review to ensure quality improvement of ACT Teams.
